The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge also begins today with lots of prizes and recognition badges.  Find out how you can become a SNS Featured Artist with special recognition on the SNS Facebook page as well as the Creative Challenge Winner's post.  From time to time, we also have special prizes just for Featured Artists.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.

Time to time I like to make something else then card. This month I share two gift boxes. Here's one of them. It's a self closing box. I used a bit too thick cardstock for the base. Lighter cardstock will make the opening of the box easier.

I used Reindeer #722 digi version DIGI722J on my box. It's so easy to manipulate them. Just one easy step and mama reindeer was watching to the other side. Images are colored with alcohol base markers. I fussy cut them out and adhered them with foam tape.
I attached Reindeers then the box was flat. That was mistake. I should had assemble the box first. Right now it looks like they are falling to their butts.
I love Glittered Lacy Backgrounds. They are fun to make and looks stunning. I adhered 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to the white cardstock, placed lace on top and added Cloud Nine glitter. After glitter was rubbed on well, I removed the lace and covered rest of the tape with Reflection glitter. 
Sentiment is printed to the white cardstock. After diecutting it with Oval die, I inked the edges with Broken China Distress ink. It is matted to a kraft label.
I used Leann Creatief Pine Tree die to diecut all the trees. For snowy look I added Dimensional Glue and Bridal Glitter. Fuzzy yarn was tied around the top of the box.

Here's the template. Klick on the image to see it larger.
